Unboxing: Memebox Superbox #53 My Honey Box


More Memebox! Time at work has been really tough lately so while I think that my Memebox obsession has really gone into madness zone, they bring me some joy after a long and sad day at work. I just love seeing these little pink boxes in the postbox – it instantly cheers me up! πŸ™‚ I love diving into them and finding out what mysterious item I have been sent. So exciting!

I bought this as a value set with the Memebox #37 Wakeup Make Up Box (including a free gift) – so I only had to pay one standard shipping for 2 boxes with free upgrade to express shipping. The shipping date for this was fixed on 19 September and I received this on 22 September. The set of 2 boxes cost me USD46, plus another USD6.99 for shipping from Korea. Individually, it’s priced at USD29, plus another USD6.99 for standard shipping.

What is Memebox?
Memebox is a non-subscription mystery beauty box company. Each regular Memebox comes with 4 to 8 full-sized or deluxe sample of Korean products, while Superbox comes with only full sized products. Shipping dates are set by the company; check the product description for information about when the box is scheduled to start shipping.

Memebox Superbox #53 Honey Box
My Honey Box oozes with all things honey to enhance your natural beauty. Honey is a pretty amazing substance and there is a lot more to it than just a sweet tasting treat. Hailed as the queen of natural beauty enhancers, honey is rich in natural sugars and minerals that work to nourish and repair damaged skin. Its natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties stop bacterial growth and heal infections, while its antioxidant-rich formula creates a youth-preserving veil over the face to protect against wrinkle-causing free radical and improve the skin’s radiance!


Item 1: DAYCELL Essential Honey Lift Massage Cream
Full size 150ml, Value of $20
Product Description: This is the perfect solution for dehydrated, sagging skin. When gently patted onto the skin, the natural honey and collagen complex of the massage cream delivers deep nutrition and firms up the skin elasticity by creating a tight-knit gel network on the skin. Plus, its unique honey-like gooey texture glides smoothly and absorbs deeply into the skin.
How to use: Take an adequate amount in your palm and massage it over you face as if patting the product into the skin. Gently roll it on the skin until everything’s absorbed. Rinse off the next morning.
Quick thoughts: Not really sure what a massage cream for the face is… from the description it seems like an overnight mask. Anyway, it sounds like a great product for my very dry skin.

Item 2: EDMONG Honeybee Water Cream
Full size 50ml, Value of $29
Product Description: Enriched with honey extracts, natural spring water, propolis extracts, aloe vera water, hyaluronic acid, and green tea extracts, this Honeybee Water Cream is a fast absorbing moisturizer which strengthens the skin’s natural restorative properties. It’s free of paraben, artificial coloring, mineral oil, benzophenone, BHT, talc, etc.
How to use: At the end of your daily skincare routine, apply the cream evenly over your face and massage it into the skin for full absorbance. It can also be used as an overnight sleeping pack.
Quick thoughts: I opened it up and it looked too interesting to hold back so I gave it a try – it’s gel like, feels cool on touch and absorbs super quickly. I can already tell that I am going to absolutely love this!

Item 3: MIGABEE Antipollution RE-Peeling
Full size 100ml, Value of $37
Product Description: This is a peel-off type of facial pack enriched with natural ingredients renowned for nourishing and brightening effects – honey, bee venom, propolis, royal jelly. It’ll work to exfoliate dead skin cells, blackheads, and whiteheads and to control excess oil and sebum by maintaining the skin clean and well-balanced.
How to use: Spread the pack adequately over your face. The texture will be sticky and honey-like at first but it’ll quickly start to dry off according to the skin temperature. Remove when its completely dried off.
Quick thoughts: Really interested to see how the texture will be “sticky and honey-like at first”. Definitely one of my top to-try items from this box!


Item 4: From Nature Multi Effect Collagen Honey Mask
Full size, Value of $1
Product Description: Containing high concentrates of real honey and collagen extracts, this delivers deep nutrition and improves skin elasticity by creating a protective moisture barrier over your skin. Plus it is packed with over 9 herbal ingredients for soothing and brightening up the overall complexion.

Item 5: Pure Smile Snail Lip Treatment Honey
Full size 10g, Value of $5
Product Description: Enriched with honey extracts, snail mucus extracts, grape seed oil, shea butter and more naturally-derived nutrients, this lip treatment moisturizes and protects dry, chapped lips.
How to use: Apply a small amount of the lip treatment over your lip. It’s especially recommended to be used overnight for an intense lip care.
Quick thoughts: Erm, I’m a bit on the fence about putting snail mucus extracts on my lips… but we’ll see if one day I’ll be brave enough to do so!

Item 6: Enesti Apple & Honey Shea Butter Hand Cream
Full size 50g, Value of $5
Product Description: The heavily nourishing honey and vitamin-rich apple formula of this hand cream works to moisturize, purify and firm up dry hands.
Quick thoughts: I’ve accumulated a large number of hand creams so I might be swapping this away. But it sounds like it will smell nice, so I’m still thinking if I should use it myself.

Item 7: Mi Click Manuka Honey Treatment
Full size 30ml, Value of $5
Product Description: Enriched with high concentrates of honey, this delivers deep nourishment, repairs damaged ends, and provides an intensive protein care to your dry hair. The natural manuka oil infused also works to renew damaged cuticles and restore silky gloss to your hair.
How to use: Towel-dry after shampooing. Take an adequate amount on your palms and softly massage it in throughout your hair. Rinse off after 5-10 minutes.
Quick thoughts: Finally I have a hair treatment for dry hair!!! Most of the hair products I’ve received from Memebox is targeted towards hair loss or oily hair, but I have thick bunch of very dry hair so I’m so glad they finally gave a thought to us dry hair girls!

All in all, I’m quite happy with this box – I love honey, and I love honey scented products. Plus I’ve read about all the benefits of using honey – and honey is always used in DIY skincare. I will definitely use most of the products, and I’m glad they included a wide variety of products from skincare to haircare. I’m really enjoying the EDMONG Honeybee Water Cream and it’ll be the first item that I use up.

In terms of value, the products come up to USD102 as per the product card, which is usually highly inflated. But I think for what I paid – USD52.99 for 2 boxes and a free gift inclusive of express shipping, this was more than worth its price.

  1. I’m kicking myself a bit for not grabbing this box. After it sold out, I ended up trying a few different Manuka Honey items (from NZ) and have just been really impressed. I’ll definitely be getting #2!

    • Hehe this is actually #2! They had another honey box some time ago which was part of the reason why I immediately bought it! πŸ˜€ If they came out with #3 I’m definitely getting it again haha!

      Ooooo what are the Manuka Honey items? Any brands? So I can also go hunt them down myself… πŸ˜€

      • Oh! Ok, I’m going to be on it if they come out with a third!

        The mask brand was Lanocreme. I also began using Royal Nectar mask and cream. Would highly recommend those brands/items!
